Eternal Now

Letting go is the path to true life.

John 3:16-17

For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him might not perish but might have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world might be saved through him.

God became like us in Jesus and showed us how to be human.

Jesus showed us how to live and how to die. He showed us how to be “whole.”

If we follow his way…we find true life right here and now.

It’s the way of dying to our ego’s selfish desires so that our true self can rise.

When we surrender our self-centered pursuits…we naturally begin using our gifts and talents in the service of others’ needs. Pursuing our own egocentric desires leads to an endless quest for more which always leads to a dead-end. But when we let go of our attachments to possessions, prestige and power, we paradoxically receive all that we need.

Unencumbered by these attachments…we find freedom, peace and joy.

In other words…we find abundant life that is both now and eternal.

That, my friends, is how we are saved through Jesus.

Turn to Jesus…follow him…and discover true life that never ends.
